    Default gRAYt day to be Catchin'

    Although the Locked-in FOG made both the drive over and the on-the-water negotiations very slow, the tentativity was soon abated. My very 1st cast awarded me a nice but just short(13.5") Flounder. Definitely forecasted a Great day of Chompin'! A couple dozen trout were fooled with artificials-only on med-light tackle, some undersized Reds were released to fight another dayName:  20211207_145214.jpg

Size:  65.7 KB, lizardfish, and the Surprise of the day. While fan-casting one of my favorite Snook areas, I caught a flash of White while feeling the take. It was OFF to the RACES as I held on with fingers-crossed to hopefully at least see this Monster before it breaks my light-action 6" FENWICK loaded w/6 lb. braid/flouro leader. The drag serviced extremely well with numerous 45 - 50 yard Windsprints!! Had to chase after him a couple times with the boat to gain some line. If I hadn't seen him at all, my bets would have been on an oversized Redfish or over-slot Snook. What I did see and eventually slip my net under was this! Name:  20211207_135258.jpg

Size:  84.4 KB of about 30/40#'s! Easily captured my Fish of the Year with all variables considered. Brought home 5 beautiful Trout(19"), super-feisty Mangrove Snapper and a treasure-trove of memories that won't soon/ever be forgotten!Name:  20211207_151356.jpg

    I’d like to have seen you and Ray tussle it out. It was a beautiful day to be out, one way or the other. Good job!
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    Truly a Walk on eggshells! The added variables were KELP and less than 4 feet of Water= He could Burn Rubber and SMOKDE drag washers in a minute!! Extremely satisfying for the final net-mesh Belly Massage!!
